- Mix 5 tbsp cocoa powder with a pinch of salt and pour in the melted chocolate and 2 tbsp milk. Mix again until smooth.
- On a cake stand or large plate, sandwich the cakes together with half of the buttercream, then spread the rest on top. Decorate with chocolate shards, if you like.
- To make chocolate shards: melt 50g dark chocolate and pour it onto a tray lined with baking parchment or foil.
